Developer Garden shared the booth of Deutsche Telekom, and presented new solutions and releases as the Developer Garden App Monitor -a useful tool for developers to monitor the performance over time of their applications- or the new features of Telekom Tropo, an IVR (Interactive Voice Response) solution.

Our Evangelist Mireia Montanyola  had the chance to participate in the WIP Jam event organized at the last day of the MWC and addressed to developers from around the globe.

 

 


Together with our friends from Oracle we showed you how to start a coffeemaker using your phone. By combining Java SE Embedded, a Raspberry Pi, our Telekom Tropo and a coffee machine, it's just one call to make developer's favorite brew.

Appropriate to that showcase also the topic of the workshop was Telekom Tropo, with which programmers played around and used to develop nice apps. In general, the hackathon and the WIP Jam event stood out for the large abundance of attendees and developers, together with the motivation and participation in the different challenges set.
